- I lead the SCD
Computational Biology group. Our primary interest is in computational structural
biology. The CCP4 and CCP-EM
teams develop software for two of the major experimental techniques. The biomolecular
simulation team pursue research using molecular dynamics on specific protein systems, and
support the CCPBioSim and
- I also lead Hartree Centre projects in
a number of bioinformatics areas.
- I have research interests in the area of protein dynamics, particularly
with respect to the interpretation of X-ray diffraction data. See

I was born in York
in 1966, and was brought up there.
I read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, followed by a D.Phil. in
theoretical chemistry from Oxford, completed in 1990. During the next
year, I held a postdoctoral position at Oxford funded by BP's Venture
Research, looking at electronic structure and conduction in disordered
materials. From 1991 to 1993, I continued this work as a research
fellow of the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851. From 1993
to 1995, I was a Lise Meitner research fellow in the Institute for
Theoretical Physics at the
Technical University of Vienna, looking at
theory and simulations of hydrogenated diamond surfaces.
From 1995, I worked on the CCP4 project in protein crystallography at the
Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, UK, and from 2001 to 2009 I was the
leader of the core group of the CCP4 project. Major projects within
CCP4 included development of TLS refinement, a major re-write of the
core software libraries, and automation of structure solution through
molecular replacement. From 2007, I am group leader of the SCD
computational biology group, working on computational structural biology
and data intensive bioinformatics.
